Video: First Look at Whitney and cast in “Sparkle”

Prior to Whitney Houston’s death, we’ve all heard how she was staging a comeback. One of the first steps in her comback is the remake of the movie “Sparkle” — and today, the first the trailer.

Here is the official synopsis, “Musical prodigy Sparkle (Sparks) struggles to become a star while overcoming issues that are tearing her family apart. From an affluent Detroit area and daughter to a single mother (Whitney Houston), she tries to balance a new romance with music manager, Stix (Derek Luke) while dealing with the unexpected challenges her new life will bring as she and her two sisters (Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) strive to become a dynamic singing group during the Motown-era.”

It comes out in August. Will you being watching Sparkle?
